New New Adult Release & GIVEAWAY! If I'd Known by Rebecca Donovan!

If I’d Known is now available in the US and Canada!

"We're all cursed—every single one of us."
Lana Peri isn't afraid of telling anyone exactly what she thinks, even if it gets her into trouble—which it usually does. But the thing is, she can't lie. Her unfiltered honesty doesn’t exactly make her many friends, although it does get her kicked out of class regularly. Lana knows the truth will eventually be her undoing. If only she’d known it would begin today. 
 It’s meant to be a night Lana and her best friends will never forget. And it is... for all the wrong reasons. Lana witnesses not just one, but two violent crimes committed by the same person. Except she can't say a word. Not if she wants to protect her friends.  
 Lana’s silence will implicate her and inadvertently cover for him. But it’s not like she has a choice. He is powerful. Connected. Untouchable. And a friend of Joey Harrison—the guy Lana is uncharacteristically drawn to the moment they meet. Joey’s also the only one who is told the truth. 
 His lies will ruin her. Her silence will keep them safe. The truth won’t save any of them.

Undone (Unknown #3)

By: Wendy Higgins

PUBLISH DATE: December 5, 2017
DATE READ: November 27, 2017

GENRES: New Adult • Dystopian • Apocalyptic • Science Fiction • Aliens • Suspense • Romance • Drama • Action • Survival 




USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins, brings you the gripping, sensual conclusion to her apocalyptic trilogy.

Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, marred by one ugly fact; it’s under enemy control. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been captured, and it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the only precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.

Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.

I love Wendy Higgins and her writing. I am a HUGE FAN. 

So when the opportunity to get my hands on an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) I jumped on it! I mean really... is there any other choice? No. The only answer is: ABSOLUTELY!

Undone starts right in from where we left off in book two, Unrest. If you haven't read that or book one, Unknown, then stop reading this right now and go read it! If you are up to date, then let's begin....

Wendy did not pull her punches. This book started off at Warp Speed Factor 4 and didn't hit the brakes the whole way through. It's an emotional jump start from the first page.

I felt overwhelmed at times. Wendy packed this novel with so much emotional pull. Scene after scene was saturated with emotion: tension, drama, humor, anxiety, fear, romance.... it was almost too much. ALMOST.

But that's when you know a book is outstanding, because THE FEELS. Wendy develops her characters and the situations envelope you. She wraps you up and immerses you into the mind of her characters. You feel what they feel. Yeeeessssssss. I love how she goes back and forth between Reme and Amber. It kept the pacing steady and my interest and peak level.

Wendy delivered some explosive revelations in this final installment. Loose ends and questions were answered. You KNOW I'm not going to reveal any spoilers, but let's just acknowledge that my mind was shattered. 

I must say that my heart was with Tater on this journey. I kept wondering if he was going to crack. He had been through so much, and wasn't handling it well. As I read Undone, and saw what was happening to him and how he watched out for Reme, I just wanted to wrap him up and take him home. I can't even imagine how he felt. I love you, man.  

The story was masterfully crafted. Wendy didn't spill the beans. She carefully weaved details and storylines into a magical web that ensnared my mind. I was kept on pins and needles the whole time, wanting answers.

Reme was a big surprise for me. She was like an onion, with layer after layer being revealed. I knew from book one that there was more to her, and we find the mother load in this final book. She develops a lot as well. She has to. She's put through hell in this book and it keeps getting worse and worse. 

By the last couple of chapters, I wanted to have words with Wendy. I mean, really. How much do you expect a person to deal with? It's just not fair.

Amber develops as well. Her path in this story is very different. I will say she had to have so much patience.  Hers was a waiting game this go round. She made some mistakes and had to learn how to live with them. Amber also had some wonderful surprises as well. 

My favorite part of the book was actually the hardest to read. It was Reme's story. The whole extensive lot of secondary characters were well developed and I fell a little more in love with each of them. Then, of course Wendy has to go and cause events that made me cry like a newborn baby.

I really enjoyed the new Alaska location. It really fit well with the story and felt very realistic. Then ending was the only hiccup to me. I wished it was drawn out a bit more. Wendy definately left the door open for a spin-off, and I'm dropping my suggestion note for that into the box. I can really see where it could take off.

But alas, this story has come to a close. May we have a moment of silence for the ending to an original, captivating and engaging trilogy that ruled my heart from the first page to the last. It slew me and left me hungry for more. You can't get any better than that.

Well done, Wendy.... well done!
